Earlier this year, we decided it was time to add a second pooch to our family canine collection. After much study, it was decided that a Labrador would be a great choice. Research found a nice mom-and-pop kennel located between Austin and San Antonio, just a 45 minute drive away. It turned out to be a great choice. Chris and Linda Gray at Seven Oaks Kennel seem like the perfect, caring, non-puppy mill family. Turned out, a new litter had arrived in early January, and there were a couple of female yellow labs still unspoken for. We made a deposit based on pictures, and then at 6 weeks drove down for our initial visit:
It was definitely a match for us, and in mid-March, Chloe joined us in her new forever-home!
Sadie, our Viszla, was not at all certain about this new interloper on the scene, but she soon warmed to the idea of having a regular lounging and sparring partner.
